I am still completely determined to find the right BB cream for me. So far all of the ones I have tried are too pale, or give me a rash or don’t last long on my oily skin.
My latest purchase from eBay is this Mushroom BB Cream from Skinfood. I bought it because I had heard this particular range (mushroom) runs a little dark so I got it in shade 02:
Mushroom on your face? Really?!
If you have read my posts on Skinfood then you will know that they make some pretty unusual products – Beer Cleanser, Garlic Face Cream, Cheese Face Mask, Broccoli Sunscreen – I love it!
Here is the Mushroom BB Cream – its runs a little pinky:
Hmmm. I can see already that its going to be too light. As well as being a bit pinky it looks a little ashy on my hand….
By the way, if you are wondering, it doesn’t smell of mushrooms but its not sweet either – if bases could be sweet of savoury, this would definitely be savoury.
The texture itself is ok -its not as oily as some BB creams can be, it feels a bit dry and on closer inspection, clung to dry patches have have.
Before (I have just plucked my brows, hence the red around there!):
It doesn’t blend as well as I like and I don’t like the pasty look it gives me at all. Its still far too pale for me, so I won’t be using it again – d’oh!
Back of the tube:
On the plus side, if this suits your skin, its a very generous tube and it does all the things you’d want for smooth, gorgeous skin – spf, anti-ageing qualities, brighter skin etc.
I got this from eBay for about £8 including shipping – there are plenty of sellers. Recommended for oilier, pale skins methinks.
